in the six-party talks and other countries in the international community to pursue appropriate action. >> reporter: the problem is there are very few options in terms of appropriate action. as you know china sits on the u.n. security council and has blocked efforts in the past to sanction the north korean regime. they are its only ally but a very powerful ally. it is not clear at this time whether china is willing to go along with any u.n. security council recommendations for further punishment of north korea. they are in violation of two significant resolutions but it is unclear what real authority the international community has in terms of punishing north korea further. jenna: interesting tie some of our top stories together. china continues to be a problem in syria. that is our top story of the day. jennifer, we'll continue to watch developments there. jon: watching the crisis in syria, a nation that continues to unravel. there are reports that more than a dozen died in a car bombing, many of them women and children. the state news agency say a car packed with explosives blew up n

line and the united states is prepared to take action if syria uses those weapons. well, and as this is all happening there appears to be some shifting in syria. in the past few days we've seen heavy, heavy fighting around damascus as rebels begin pushing in that area. there is cause to think the syrian government is losing its grip on damascus, that may be part of the reason why they are preparing their chemical weapons. the syrian government of course has said it does not have chemical or biological republicans, and even if it did it would not use them. jon, we are also hearing now that the foreign minister, the spokesman for the foreign minister, rather has defected. it's more evidence, sort of more to the belief that there is some shifting ground among the bashar al-assad regime. whether or not it's close to collapsing is anyone's guess but there are big changes going on right now among the bashar al-assad regime. jon: and the killing goes on, that is the tragic part in all of this. thanks very much. jenna: a delicate situation unfolding in louisiana after residents

running down street. she's now an elderly woman, and she survived thanks to that photographer's action. of it's much tougher when you make the decision as a photojournalist to go on filming and not help, and i had to cover one of those cases in 1983 when i was just a junior reporter, and it was appalling. there were two photographers who had watched a man set himself on fire in a protest and had done nothing. i think that's a case where you really have to just draw the line and say that's, that's bad behavior. jon: but, stanley, i mean, these are so often such momentary judgment calls. you have the blink of an eye to decide whether to take the photo or help out another human being. >> well, i can only say if i'm in the position, i hope and i plan to help first. and, you know, everybody has a cell phone now. this is just a bigger story because of what happened here. but if you look at images coming across the whole country, the whole world, everybody's got a cell phone. not too many people are diving in. they all want to be published. and i think that hurts, is hurting what's happening.
